Description of problem:
I have POP accounts set to leave messages on the server. Every time I receive
mail from the POP account, all the messages on the server are fetched again, and
appear multiple times in my local Inbox folder.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set up a POP account with 'leave messages on server'
2. hit the send/receive button several times.

Actual Results:  multiple copies of each msg.

Expected Results:  each msg retrieved only once.

Additional info:

This setup worked as expected using version 1.0.8.

I don't see this here...  what's the server on the remote side?  You might also
try running `CAMEL_VERBOSE_DEBUG=1 evolution-mail` in a terminal and then
starting in evolution from another terminal (once evolution-mail says its up and
running) and look at the pop traffic for anything obvious

Comment 2 Guy Streeter 2003-04-02 16:49:37 UTC
The server is
Cubic Circle's v1.31 1998/05/13 POP3

Comment 4 Ivo Sarak 2003-04-02 23:03:00 UTC
It is exactly the same problem as 

So there is nothing someone can do about it except not to leave the messages on
POP server or is there a way?

Comment 5 Guy Streeter 2003-04-02 23:10:30 UTC
I think this is not the same as 78456. I reported that evolution shows all the
messages on the pop server as new messages, and downloads them all as new
messages every time you click send/receive, so you see multiple copies of every
one in your evolution inbox.

This bug was very common in some old versions of evolution (how I found in
evolution bugzilla). It seems it is back again (I have the same behaviour). In
evolution bugzilla they are allways suggesting that you need to create directory
~/evolution/config because it is not created as it should. But I had this dir
with lot of file and it happen also.
What I did now, I removed all evolutions settings a reinicialized it (I upgrade
evo from 1.0.8 so I lose a lot of settings :( ). Then I created
~/evolution/config dir and for now it seems it is OK.

Comment 7 Adam Pribyl 2003-05-14 10:59:32 UTC
The problem is back again. I am susspicions about that it somehow relates to the
fact that mailbox is also accessed with pine.

This is not same as #78456 but it can be dependent. I also noticed that
evolution is too long reading POP summary. The long POP summary read is mainly
noticable when using SSL.

Comment 8 Jeremy Katz 2003-06-29 20:48:20 UTC
This is due to the pop server not implementing the UIDL extension.  1.4 works
around this.
